Visually impaired children learn all about baking!

Ten visually impaired children cooked up a storm during a day in the kitchen with bakers.

Bakehouse, a pastry-making company, is supporting the work of Berkshire County Blind Society and invited youngsters from the county to its Surrey offices for a special cookery experience.
Teenagers got to learn how to make yummy pizzas with Bakehouse staff, while younger children made and decorated biscuits.

Rachel Saunders from Bakehouse said: “Decorations and toppings for the pizzas and biscuits were selected for their smells, colours and textures.

“We wanted to make the event as interesting as possible for the visually impaired children and, because the day was so hands-on, it was perfect for them.”
